Shopping always acts as a stress buster as well as a mood booster. The satisfaction of shopping is increased manifold if it is accompanied by something spicy and tangy.

Whenever, I had the chance to visit Delhi, I never forgot to gulp down a plate or two of those spicy treats. I had first tasted them in Delhi since my relatives live in Lajpat Nagar. Now, thankfully, these are available in Ludhiana as well outside shopping malls. Whenever I go for shopping, eating these ladoos dipped in chutney is the first thing that I do. Even my husband is so fond of them, that even if I don’t ask for them, he will certainly buy a plate. These are so easy to make that anybody who knows frying can make these without any difficulty.
